Wow! Thanks, Ruth. That's fantastic. I went to the URL you gave, and Florence had a monumental brass made in her honour in 1596, so this story is older than I imagined. I also assumed that Tim's story is from the USA. Maybe it is. Maybe this is a widely circulated story? Or was Florence the woman in question? I doubt that a farmer's wife would be Lady Wyndham! Or did she change to a farmer within the telling of the story when it travelled to the USA? Any clues, anyone?
Ruth, glad to hear that things are getting better with David now.
